Krista Horton

Growing up with all sisters Krista prided herself on making sure she was the one to mow the lawn, play the sports, carry the coolers and catch frogs. She's always loved the outdoors and the color yellow. She played soccer, scrapbooked and spent every summer day at the pool with friends while growing up in a perfect red rock town in Southern Utah. Krista attended 3 universities and spent 7 years earning her bachelor's degree (not the smartest way to do college, btw, she says) but during those years she also left the country for full-time missionary service and later got married to her perfect match. A few months after finally earning her degree in Health Promotion and Education from the University of Utah, Krista gave birth to her first son. 8 years later, she now has 4 beautiful children and the same wonderful husband whom she learns from, laughs with, talks to non-stop and adores. They have moved around a few times in their 10 years of marriage, but so far have kept close to the mountains that they love so much.

Krista is a student of parenting books, graduated in Health Education, owns a small photography business, podcasts about scripture study, and oversees editorial content for this Small Seed website!

Because life has it's ups and down and I have wrestled so much with my own feelings of inadequacy and doubt I have found that my connection to God to be my lifeline—for myself and my family. Through lots of scripture study, prayer, seeking and listening I have come to trust God and have come to feel so much gratitude for His Son who has been the key to feeling so much real peace and joy in my heart. God is good. And as we keep eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to understand He is there!
